Cosmetic Cases

I have been living out of a suitcase for what feels like months. Every week I’ve been packing, unpacking, and repacking for various trips. I’m normally really good about unpacking my luggage immediately upon returning home. I throw dirty clothes straight into the washer and hang/fold whatever I didn’t wear and put my shoes away.

The one thing that I’ve been kind of bad about? My toiletries. If it were a one-off trip, I would unpack those as normal, but because I’ve had these quick turnarounds I end up keeping what I use daily on the counter. It’s driving me nuts– but it does make packing a lot easier when everything I use is already out. To keep things a little less cluttered, I’ve been trying to keep my makeup and various toiletries in cosmetic bags on my counter. I have a huge collection of cosmetic bags– so no matter what size or shape I need, I’m covered.

I thought it’d be fun to round up some cute options. They’re great gifts, and if you’re short on space, they’re perfect storage solutions too!

This oxblood one is my typical go-to because it fits a LOT– I put all my big things in there. I love using these little guys for makeup; even though they’re small, they fit all of my everyday favorite products. If you need something a little bigger, try one of these. They pack well and can be used for organizing products in a dorm room!

Thank you for sharing this 🙂 There’s something nice about having a lovely make-up back to pop your make-up into. I have a deep red Clinique one – I love it so much. I’m definitely in need of a new make-up bag though so, I’m going to have a look through your suggestions!

Have a lovely weekend 🙂

I have the $10 one from Target (the diamond one in the second row) and it’s seriously perfect. It’s roomy enough where I can fit all of my makeup plus a few extras and it’s really nice quality and a great price. Would definitely recommend to others!

I’m a sucker for cute cosmetic pouches, they always make traveling feel extra special for me 🙂 I can’t pick which of these is my favorite!

These are so cute, I wish I was traveling that much, but one summer I might be! These cosmetic bags are absolutely adorable and are perfect for any trip or carry on!
